During pregnancy, expectant mothers are encouraged to take calcium-magnesium supplements to combat the sleeplessness that often comes from having a tiny human kicking at your ribcage. Adults can take oral supplements as well, but topical magnesium is the best way for little ones to get a boost.
You can purchase expensive magnesium lotion, but it’s likely to contain preservatives and stabilizers and other hard-to-pronounce ingredients. Nothing compares to making your own sleep aid lotion and knowing what each ingredient is. With a few ingredients, you can make a double-strength magnesium lotion to help everyone in your family, from newborns to adults, get a better night's sleep.
